THE WEEKENDER PEDIGREE: FRANKEL

Unbeaten in three starts, the Galileo colt Frankel has soared to the top of the ante-post betting for next year’s English classics with an impressive victory in the Group 2 Royal Lodge Stakes at Ascot on Saturday.

Sadly, the 10-length winner of the Royal Lodge over a mile is not likely to visit Kentucky for a crack at the Breeders’ Cup races for juveniles.
